Debbie asks:
Please add my mother, Betty McIntyre, to the prayer list. She is in the hospital because of a lot of fluid built up on her feet and legs. They are trying to rule out congestive heart failure. Please pray that the Lord will open the doors for the Doctors to find out what is wrong and that He touch her with His healing grace. She suffered a stroke 3 years ago that affected her left frontal lobe, which is her short term memory, so she gets confused a lot and is very forgetful. DebbieD90@aol.com

Julie - That God will reveal to me his will concerning WS, RH and K. If it is not meant to be, that God will remove my desperation and desire. holt4@hotmail.com

HAngel1@aol.com asks:
PLEASE pray for Austin, who was born July 8. He weighed 5 lbs 3 oz. when he was born. Austin quit breathing and turned blue. They called 911 and he was life flighted to the Hospital in Cleveland where he was in full arrest when he got there. He is now in a coma and on machines. They are hoping to be able to take him off the machines by Tuesday, and start getting him ready for surgery. He has 2 heart defects which have to be corrected or he definitely will not survive. But they are also concerned about his chances of surviving surgery. IN JESUS NAME WE PRAY for HIS LIFE ! I've been married for 30 years with 4 children and one in heaven who died 2 days after birth. I need prayer for my 20 year old son and my 17 year old daughter. My son was sent to Teen Challenge (a christian rehab center) for drugs and drinking a few years ago. He accepted the Lord during his stay and he met a 16 year old girl. They were married a year ago and were seperated shortly after because she left him several times. She was adopted and her adoptive parents were sending her to a group home when she got pregnant with his child. I took her into my home and the baby was born this past weekend without arms. It is devastating and a shock but he is absolutely adorable. Steven moved in with us also and Lori is trying to get back with him. Please pray that he will bond with the baby and stay with his wife. There is a lot of drugs and alcohol in my family. I was brought up in it. My mother and father (who shot himself ) died because of it. I am trying to break the generational cycle. All my children are drinking and some smoking pot. I just found out that my 17 year old is smoking pot and lost her virginity and she had left home with a guy who is not good for her but she has now returned. I feel like there is a death because she was the one I had hope for. She was following the Lord but then just rebelled. Please pray that we can get her away from this guy...she now wants our help but she is weak. I have been suffering with depression for 17 years and was having some healing and now I am afraid that the stress of this will put me back over the edge. Please pray for healing from depression and anxiety and for my family problems. LindaL9@aol.com

Please pray for my mother-in law again her name is Marlene she was diagnosed with congested heart failure and for a while through prayers she got a little better, but now we are going to take a trip down to Central Il. to be with her this weekend because she is not doing well again.

Frances shares:
Thank you for your prayers for my husband, Johnny Spearman, who had a heart attack and had surgery July 2. He had 3 arteries opened by Angioplasty and wire mesh "Stents" were inserted in these arteries. There was alot of damage to the rest of his heart also from a previous heart attack he did not know he had. After Johnny came home from the hospital, he did very well, but started having problems this past Friday. He has been having some chest pains and pressure again and has not felt good at all since Friday. On Tues. 20th, he went back to his cardiologist for an examination & EKG. The Dr. said there is definitely something wrong again..... One of the Stents could have collapsed or be clogged and it could be another Artery causing oxygen not to get to his heart. On Friday, 23rd at 8 a.m. he will have another Heart Catherization at Anderson Hosp. to determine WHAT is going on & he may be sent back to Greenville Hosp. for more surgery, depending on what they find. Please remember Johnny & our family in your prayers this week. He is concerned and depressed about having to go through all this again. We KNOW God will take care of him and we have FAITH that he will soon be back on the road to recovery. Continue to pray for our Financial needs also. Johnny will NOT be able to return to work and the next 6 months will be hard with no income until he can start drawing his Disability. We have FAITH that God will take care of us, whatever the situation. Also, continue to remember me in your prayers. I saw my Neuro-Surgeon on Tues. and the MRI shows I have a "Ruptured Disk" in my lower back, which is pressing on a nerve in my spine & is causing the severe pain. Some scar tissue will also have to be removed and I will be having Surgery as soon as I can. We have to get Johnny through this Catherization and whatever they have to do, before I can schedule my surgery. spearman@innova.net

Yesterday i took him to Rivendale for 10 days hoping that they can help him out. We have been in and out of court for the past six monthes trying to keep him in our home and the GOOD LORD has kept him with us. He went voluntarily to the center hoping he can recieve help. He asked the Lord into his life about 1 month ago. Praise him for coming into my brothers life. We all believe that he has been sexually abused by his step father.

Sheldon asks:
My father had a high fever of 103.5 over the weekend and Sunday evening it finally broke. He now has a severe case of Cellulitis, which is an infection in the legs. It seems to be spreading upwards towards his waist. It's always been only from the knee down in the past. So if you could put in a prayer request I'd sure be thankful. He really needs healing or he could lose his leg or even worse, his life if the infection spreads up to his heart. houdini@ctr.net

Michelle shares:
First, let me thank those of you who prayed for my mom, Linda, and her brain tumor a couple months ago. Surgery went very well, and she is now completely recovered except for a few medications and regular check ups. Pray that the tumor will not return.The main reason I am writing you all today is because of a prayer need regarding a dear friend named Sue. Her husband, Chuck, was killed by a hit and run driver a couple weeks ago. He left a 7-year-old son, and a 9-year-old daughter. He also has two older children not living at home. The good news is that Chuck became a dedicated Christian just a year ago, along with his wife, after the children pestered them to come to church. The police have evidence as to who killed Chuck, but they expect that the investigation will take a long time. Meanwhile, the family had no insurance and could not even pay for the cost of the funeral. To top it off, Sue and her two children were evicted from their central Florida home because there is now no income. They are living temporarily in a small bedroom at our church because there is no where for them to go. Even assisted housing does not provide emergency housing in our state as of July the first, (or so we have been told repeatedly by state officials). She also has a deteriorating bone disease and is disabled, preventing her from working ordinary jobs. She is making an effort to take care of her family by enrolling in vocational training courses that will endeavor to train her for a job that she can successfully fulfill in her condition. It has been one nightmare after another for her, and the poor woman has not had any real time to grieve. Please pray for all aspects of this situation. She needs housing, continued monetary and food assistance, correct vocational training, job placement, physical health, emotional grieving space, consistent help with the children, the killers to be convicted, and so much more. The church is doing all they can to help, including setting up a trust fund for the children's ongoing life needs at Sun Trust Bank, as well as a regular account for Sue's immediate needs. If anyone can help in any way, financially or otherwise, please contact church secretary Karen Tubb, at the Sanford First Church of the Nazarene in Sanford, Florida, Phone: (407) 322-3122. She has ongoing details of this family's status and can provide you with information on tax deductible donations that would go directly to Sue and her children. You can also visit their web site at www.sanfordnazarene.com for details on the church itself. (***If you wish to write letters to Sue and the children, please email them to me at Purpose_Intl@juno.com. I will pass them on in hard copy form and when they are able, they will attempt to answer you by regular post because they do not have computer access. I think it would be particularly good if the children could have some letters from age appropriate pen pals. They really do miss their daddy, and need some encouragement.)

Debbie asks:
Please pray for my nephew AJ. He was recently saved, has been in a bad situation and is having to go to court to keep from returning to a bad situation at his home. Last night the DHS case worker had to go again, on his weekend to visit his mother and pick him up. Because he and his stepfather were into it. DHS asked AJ if he would go to Rivendale, which is a psych evaluation facility and he agreed and will have to be there 10 days. They are doing this so there will be some professional documentation on his case, so maybe the judge will rule that he doesn't have to return home but will be allowed to remain with his sister. Please pray that he will turn to the Lord for guidance, courage, peace, and that he will keep the faith that God is in control. He is only 14 years old and was moved away from his paternal family for 3 years. When they finally moved back, this is the type of life he has had. Since he has been with his sister, Christy, he has been coming to church and has recently joined. DebbieD90@aol.com

Linda asks:
Please pray for my boss. He had prostate cancer surgery in July. They thought he was cancer-free, but his cancer has returned. They are trying a series of injections that might help shrink the cancer and keep it from growing. If this doesn't work, radiation is the next step. He's only 49 and has a wife.They have 2 small children that are adopted. Also, he will probably close the business, which will leave me without a job. This will be disastrous financially for my family. linda_perdue@yahoo.com

*Four* prayer requests for one family of friends of ours!!!! Please pray for BEATRICE G., a cheerful and precious saint and grandmother whose faith never ceases to amaze me. Bea has lumps on her breast, a disintegrating spine, severe heart problems and a long list of other ailments. How she continues to function at all is a miracle to all who know her -- she works long hours in a factory, gardens and keeps a spotless house -- but she has a simple explanation: "When things get too bad, I ask God to carry me, and He does."
Bea's unsaved husband STUART had a heart attack yesterday while out for a walk and lay for 90 minutes on the pavement in a school yard before being discovered. Now he is in intensive care, and doctors say the next few days are absolutely critical.
Bea's unsaved son STEPHEN is having a lot of pain in the stump of an amputated leg. Doctors say gangrene has set in and they may have to amputate still more. Stephen is battling alcohol addiction fairly successfully, praise the Lord, but Bea is anxious for his soul.
Bea's other unsaved son is ALLEN. He's giving serious thought to returning to the faith in which she brought her family up, but Bea can't rest until he recommits his life to the Lord. Please pray as the Lord leads you for all four of these people. If you would like to send Bea notes of encouragement or prayers of support, I will print them off and get them down to her as soon as possible, okay?

I am a Christian and have shared my faith with Charlie for many years now. He claims to be a Christian, but his life shows no signs of any faith in the Lord and in fact, has become rather cynical toward my sharing the gospel with him.

I write again with such a burdened heart. I just received my outcome of the IRS audit and they say I owe them $8,000.00.

Frances Spearman asks:
"PLEASE PRAY FOR MY HUSBAND, JOHNNY SPEARMAN WHO SUFFERED A HEART ATTACK. He is 52 yrs. old & we've been married for 35 yrs. THURSDAY JULY 1st around 1 a.m., my husband woke up with severe pressure in his chest and his arms were aching & heavy. He tried to assure me he was ok (Men can be stubborn sometimes, especially Johnny!) and would not let me take him to the hospital. He did take an aspirin and finally went back to sleep. He went on to work and decided he needed to see our doctor immediately. When he got to the doctor's office, they were waiting for him and did an EKG and sent him to the hospital in Anderson SC. After another EKG & blood enzyme tests, the Cardiologist found he had not only had a heart attack that morning, but SOMETIME IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS OR SO, HE HAD SUFFERED A VERY BAD HEART ATTACK and Johnny didn't even know it. He had been tired & weak for several weeks. He worked 3 outages at the Nuclear plants & working in 120 degree heat in some places plus strenuous work. The doctor then called in a Surgeon Cardiologist who did a Catherization on Friday a.m. They transferred him to Greenville SC & did surgery late Friday afternoon July 2. The surgeon said his heart was not getting enough oxygen and he found several blockages but could only repair 3 of them. He was able to open these 3 arteries by ANGIOPLASTY and put in wire "Stints" to hold them open. Two were 90% blocked & the other one was 70% blocked. Another one was completely closed and hardened & could not be repaired and several others are 30-50% blocked. The bottom of his heart is completely damaged and hardened from the first bad heart attack he had. The surgeon could not repair any of this. He told us that "IT IS A MIRACLE JOHNNY DID NOT DIE ON HIS JOB". I KNOW GOD WAS TAKING CARE OF HIM THESE PAST MONTHS!! The Cardiologist said the causes of his heart attacks were: Heredity from both sides of his family and His job stress, excessive heat & strenuous work. He has been with the Nuclear plant for 31 years but cannot retire until he is 55, except by Medical Retirement. THE DOCTORS ALL SAY JOHNNY CANNOT GO BACK TO WORK AT ALL OR HE WILL HAVE ANOTHER HEART ATTACK AND IT WILL BE FATAL THIS TIME. PLEASE PRAY FOR US! It has been a rough week for us, our 4 children and families. Our son, who is our Pastor, and the other children are very close to their daddy and are taking this very hard. WE ALMOST LOST HIM, BUT WE KNOW GOD HAS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING. Johnny needed to slow down and now he has no option. WE ARE SO THANKFUL GOD SPARED HIS LIFE & THAT 3 BLOCKAGES COULD BE REPAIRED. I brought him home from the hospital Wed. afternoon. PRAY FOR OUR FINANCIAL NEEDS ALSO. It will be a 6 months waiting period before he can start to draw Medical Retirement. God has always been with us and taken care of us and HE will continue to do so and we KNOW this! I can't help but worry & we're both a little discouraged, especially knowing I am most likely facing surgery also. Pray that I can encourage Johnny as I care of him. The doctor said it is normal for him to go through Depression after having 2 heart attacks. Your prayers for me & my back pain have meant so much & I thank you for them! Continue to pray as I go to see my Neuro-Surgeon on July 20th to find out the results of my MRI & if I need surgery on my back. It is getting progressively worse, especially this past week. I've been taking pain pills every 4 hrs. to keep going. I'm very concerned about whether to have surgery or not since this happened to Johnny. The pain is worse now and it's hard to keep going but I have to for Johnny's sake. I am trusting the Lord to show me what I NEED to do. Keep us both in your prayers and may God bless you."

Teresa Jones - "She is about 26 years old. She has a 3 year old little girl and just had a baby about a month ago. Barely 2 weeks after the baby was born she had to go to the ER because of a severe headache. She was diagnosed with an aneurism. She had surgery and everyone thought she was getting better, but she started to not recognize people and ended up having 2 strokes in the same day. Now she is staring into space, barely recognizing her 3 year old little girl and not even acknowledging her newborn. This is so heartbreaking to me, not only because I know them but I know that those children need her so badly right now. She has a wonderful husband and loving family and friends that have been praying for her but I thought a little extra prayer could only help. Please take a little time to pray for her and her family. I don't know alot of people on the net and was wondering if you could do me a favor. Would you send this to everyone you know and ask if they would do the same. This family needs alot of prayers."

I'm currently in a rehab-eldercare center in Williamsburg, VA. The Lord has permitted by right humerous to mend well however, after 51 days, the arm has not recovered, and a Electro Myleogram shows nerve damage to the arm. I am taking Electric-shock, ultra sound therapies starting July 1st to reorient the nerves and cause the muscles to move. I am still in pain, but there are a number of things occurring that leads me by my faith that God through the medical professionals will see me improve painfully slow. Prayers are requested still for the pain to cease and that God permits the return of the arm and hand to use as before. In His name. Amen. (Smileyleo@webtv.net)

Sheila asks:
"Mike who is a friend of my friend Sharone who is Jewish had I guess a psychotic break on Thursday. After Mike returned from a movie with Sharone he was acting oddly but then went to sleep. At 4am his mother checked on Mike to see him standing on his bed, writing on his bedroom wall in marker, "There is a heaven, there is a hell." then he proceeded to drag his grandmother out into the living room to pray for him. His mother got scared and called the cops and they took him to this psych facility. Sharone who is Jewish doesn't believe in God and is freaked out about this. Mike isn't religious either. Both Mike and Sharone are 21. Please pray for Mike to get better, for Sharone that he will find comfort and peace, for mikes family also, his mother is taking this very hard which is understandable.

My doctor received the results Monday and sent them to my Neuro-Surgeon. I have an appointment with him on July 20th....that is the earliest I can get in to see him (21 more days!). I won't know the results of the MRI until I see the Surgeon on the 20th, but I do know they found something wrong that requires a Neuro-Surgeon. Please pray for me to have "Patience" until then.....mine is running out.....because the pain is so bad. They told me to be careful, not to be lifting or do anything to hurt myself further, & to take my pain medicine until I see the Surgeon. In 1990 when I had surgery on my spine, he did my surgery 3 days after I saw him at his office. God is in control and I TRUST Him and I Trust my Surgeon also.
